11  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help--How to cut a glass bottle? on: July 02, 2007 01:30:57 PM
righty-o. So, my boyfriend/best friend has this thing (obsession?) with Bawls (energy drink). And our one year anniversary is coming up. So after browsing ebay for a bit, I found these....



aka awesome as hell and i want to make them. I have plenty of bottles to test on and stuff (he gives them to me because i think they're pretty  Smiley ), and i found this tute over at wikihow: http://www.wikihow.com/Cut-a-Bottle-to-Make-a-Glass-for-Drinking. Is this a good tute for cutting a glass bottle? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance Smiley

Righty-o. New to stencilling, not great at it, but it's fun as hell so it was like....might as well.

So I'm also not big on the putting-my-face-on-things-I-own thing, but I thought it would be cool if there was a profile of me with me hair flowing back on...say, a pillowcase. Now I realize that instead of just heavily editing the hair to make it look fun, I could have (shouldhave, rather) turned my hair into something cool like waves or fire. Buuuuutt I'm not that artsy ^^;. So yeah.  Took a picture (which i stupidly saved over by accident with the stencil--oops), made it two pages wide on www.blockposters.co m, printed it out on manilla folders for stencil. Painted rather sloppily and had to pretend that the profile line was supposed to look like that....errr... Roll Eyes hehehe. Impatiently dried it with a hairdryer, aaaaand......ta-da?

How subtle am I... white paint on an off-white pillowcase Roll Eyes [please ignore the very very off timestamps... and my deformed ear  Embarrassed)

Righty-o. I finished stencilling two pairs of boxers for my boyfriend's birthday and decided to post them. (My first post/project... don't blame me for not having mad skills)

First one: Skittles. You know, like, "Taste the Rainbow"? Smiley Not that my boyfriend and I are like that, but humor is always fun.

Me modeling them:

Second one: Bawls! Noooo not a crude joke... a high caffeine energy drink. My boyfriend loves it (it is quite delicious). If you don't believe me... http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/drinks/2818/. I was originally going to do the actual logo, which has a "Fueled by" above the "Bawls," but the lettering was too tiny and it failed Sad Because I don't have mad skillz.

Me modeling again:
